Cobalt worth the extra

" Quite pricey for a drill but if you have a powerchange you need it, there is no alternative. Have used both the hss and the cobalt and found the cobalt to be well worth the extra. "

Good, not brilliant
31 Mar 2010
By Woodman2
, Horsham
" I snapped two of these drills making pilot holes in 3mm mild steel sheet. On breaking through to the other side, the flutes snatched and the bit broke halfway up the shank.
I will buy this product again, but only because I have no choice as it's specific to the PowerChange arbor.

What Have Bosch Done?
17 Feb 2015
By ajelec
, Maidstone
" Had the Bosch kit for a few years, the holesaws used to be really good, no they don't seem to be man enough anymore.
This pilot drill seems to slip out of the arbor which is really annoying.
Also, as the other reviewers say, these drill bits do break quite easily. So its best to drill a pilot with a slightly smaller HSS bit then go through with the Bosch pilot. "

Rubbish!

" Always breaks i have gone through 6 or 7 in the last 2 years ! I like the bosch powerchange for cutting holes in ceilings for downlights etc it is a good piece of kit but the powerchange pilot drill is so brittle and is the weak link. "
